VITICULTURAL YEAR
The 2015 vinicultural year began with a rainy spring after a rigorous winter which was later found to have a major importance in securing soil water re- serves. This was the key to the drought and heat conditions that followed dur- ing June and July. In the maturation period during August, the diurnal and nocturnal temperatures were milder which allowed to preserve the acidity of the grapes obtaining balanced must and consequently elegant wines.

VINEYARDS
This wine is exclusively obtained from Tinta Roriz grape variety which were picked from a 42-years-old vineyard parcel installed at 70 meters of altitude.

VINIFICATION
After careful selection by their best state, the grapes were harvested for chests of 25 kg and sent to the wine- making center where they were fully de-stemmed. Fermentation occurred during 9 days in the traditional 7-ton granitic stone tanks with foot stepping and smooth reassembles for blanket leaching and extraction of phenolic and aromatic compounds. At the end of the alcoholic fermentation the wine was transferred to 2nd year French oak barrels where malolactic fermentation occurred and aged for about 18 months.

TASTING NOTES
Pacheca Tinta Roriz reveals good aro- matic intensity with black fruit notes of blackberry and blueberry, some her- baceous characteristic of the grape and notes of well-integrated wood. It pre- sents very good structure in the mouth, soft tannins and a long and persistent ending.
